Oh my god...

I just found a corprate perk we have .. Just browsing through..

::cries I wish I had the money and 12 other people cause this would rule!

In the heart of Italy, the region of Umbria is the birthplace of saints and home to some of the world's greatest artistic treasures. Among the hills, olive groves, and terraced vineyards sits Todi Castle and estate, an exclusive property available for short-term lease. Owned and maintained by a noble Italian family, and recently profiled in Architectural Digest, Todi Castle features five bedrooms and a private apartment for up to 13 guests. Other amenities include luxurious swimming pools, scenic terraces, and private modern bathrooms.
For our employees, Todi Castle is available for an extravagant one-week retreat from $5,600, including cooking staff and maid service.
In addition, upon your arrival you and your guests will be treated to a complimentary feast featuring local delicacies, award-winning wines, and organic stone-mill olive oils produced on the estate (a $120 value per person).



I am sure you guys are like wow .. I know I am ..

Hey, it's not that bad.
Really if there were 13 people it would lony be $430.77 for the week per person. Of course then there is still the flight to GET there, and food for the week once you are there, and shopping money, and cab or bus or taxi money. Plus a little extra for emergencies. So see? It's not really that expensive.

I'm wondering if the $5600 is total or per person. For a week in a fully staffed Italian castle, I'd be expecting that it's per, not total. However, I'd definitely start saving my pennies....

Where they always catch you on these sorts of things is the "from" part of it. "From $5600" means that's just the starting price.

Ack! Eeeep! Aaaaaaaaaugh!
It's like one of my favorite movies, Enchanted April! Wow, how fast do we need to act? I have more stock options to sell on June 1st and there's a 3/2 split in the next two weeks... how else can I pimp myself out? This seems too reasonable to pass up, there *must* be a way!

Assuming I could afford it, you know I would so be all over that with you. Let me know if the $5600 is per person or total and a when, and I'll see what I can do about saving up some cash.
